Brian Gefen Brian Gefen Brian A. Gefen "1953 Hand Me Down" I received a thick bounded book containing "LIFE" magazine from the year 1953. This caused an inspirational shift to depict the outdated advertisements and create something just as fabricated and sometimes almost as ridiculous. This "1953 Hand Me Down" became my re-contextualized time period. Keeping the same commercial aesthetic I add the humor that I feel is left unsaid in the advertisements. Consequently, I create a new identity for each original work. -You can check out Brian's work at 192288759 "Thick Slushy Creamy Pie"-Title "Thick Slushy Creamy Pie"-Title "1953 Hand Me Down"-Series Acrylic and graphite on canvas 31 7/8 x 16 7/8 Executed in 2014 $1,500 192288760
